Sunway University #1 in Graduate Employability

Sunway University was awarded Malaysia’s No. 1 in Graduate Employability (among private universities in Malaysia) by Talentbank National Graduate Employability Index (GE Index), making our graduates officially the preferred recruitment choice of the nation’s leading brands.

This remarkable result highlights the excellent holistic education the university provides, ensuring our graduates are job ready and future-proof. By providing a wide variety of support, resources, and guidance curated by our experienced Sunway Career Services team, we help students navigate their career pathways and become highly sought after by employers.

The GE Index is a benchmark used to measure the employability of graduates of higher education establishments in Malaysia. Calculated using quantitative research methodology, it is based on votes cast by employers, on aspects of graduate employability. The responses received from the GE Index research have shed light on some key questions, such as each employer's opinion on their preferred universities, the number of graduates hired from these universities, and if the employers will continue to hire graduates from the same universities they had previously chosen.

The aim of the GE Index is to give due recognition to higher educational institutions across Malaysia and to serve as a guide to school leavers and parents who are considering university options and wish to keep employability in mind. Talentbank GE Index has recently conducted a survey on the preferred recruitment choices of the leading graduate employers that include leading brands like Microsoft, Shopee, IBM, Top Gloves, SHELL, PETRONAS, Nippon Paint, Motorola, and Hartalega – to name a few, in Malaysia.
